A Cure for the Summertime Blues

Looking for some fun tunes to take to the beach or for toolin’ around with the top down? Give Passion Pit a listen. They produce energetic, catchy music that will liven up your summer. It all started a couple years ago when Michael Angelakos produced a Valentine’s Day EP for his girlfriend. It eventually got into the hands of his friends, began making the rounds, created a lot of buzz, and ultimately got him a record contract. Passion Pit’s first full length album, Manners, was released in the spring of 2009. The music is joyous, dancy, electronic indie pop. Angelakos often sings in falsetto with layers of high-pitched backup vocals and the songs feature plenty of production value—almost to the point of overproduction. But, I sense that’s the whole point of the music. Perfect for the dog days of summer.
